Kakiemon bowl, c 1670 AD

Unique pair of saki jars made by Zengoro Wazen (Eiraku),
one of Japan's greatest potters. From a long line of potting
experts (the eleventh generation), his grandfather Ryozen
Eiraku died in 1841; his father Hozan Eiraku was born in
1793 and died in 1860. Zengoro went to the Yoshidaya
kiln in Kaga Province and stayed there for six years where
he made the famous Kinrande-Yao, which bears his signa-

ture, derived from the Chinese 'rouge-vif' of the Yung-Io period.
These pieces weren't inferior to the originals from China and are
regarded to be among ceramic masterpieces of the world. These
coral and gold brocade style sakis are with Chinese motifs, the
Phoenix bird and 4-clawed dragon, surrounded by waves, conch
and cloud-scrolls.  In museum condition. Height 6". Ref Jenyns
